Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS

Reposted from my friendslist, since it conveniently saves me having to write something like that myself. Leaving aside the fact that on a personal, selfish note I find the Russian side of livejournal increasingly useful and enjoyable for language learning purposes, I do think it's important to support livejournal and the Russian users through this, or at least show solidarity, seeing as I have no idea how much of difference the non-Russian user base actually makes.

For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.


Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.
